2012禁食日记 – 第十七天： “效法世界” 2012 Fasting Diary – Day 17: “Conforming to the world”
～ 罗12:2 ～
Day 17 (23/08/12)
As a Christian or even church, we can be easily influenced by our past thinking, the current situation, trend and values of the world, probably due to pressures, daily living, self-interests, wanting to please others or not wanting to offend people etc… sometimes without realizing, or without thinking much, we have already compromised the teaching of God’s truth or His will…
After time goes by, we will not be able to discern what is our own will, following the world or God’s will!
No wonder Paul reminded us:
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is —his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
~ Romans 12:2 ~
“Be transformed by the renewing of” is an ongoing process and action, so hopefully we will always be alert, to always examine ourselves honestly before the Lord, and asking Him to reveal to us and search our hearts and thoughts and motives.
